HUGH MARTIN

Biography

I want to punctuate the present through referencing a past that is the sum of many parts, cultural, geographical, art historical, and perhaps most of all, personal.

HUGH MARTIN was born in Hamilton, Ontario in 1973. He attended Ryerson University in Toronto and graduated with a B.F.A. in Photography Studies.

 

Martin has been honoured with the Gold Medal, Faculty of Communication & Design, Howard H. Kerr Memorial Scholarship, J.L. Beaton Award and Roloff Beny Foundation France Study Abroad Award through Ryerson University, as well as receiving a du Maurier Arts Council Grant.

 

Martin's work has been published in magazines including Prefix Photo and The Walrus, and is included in various private, public and corporate collections throughout North America including OCAD University, Ryerson University, Canada Colors and Chemicals, Deloitte, Four Seasons Hotel, RBC Financial Group (New York), Scotiabank and Trimark.

 

Martin holds an academic staff position within the Photography Centre at OCAD University and maintains his studio in Hamilton, Ontario where he lives.
